We do not want cost to be a barrier to any potential members, so we offer bursary places to families in challenging circumstance – these bursary places cover the membership fees and also additional expenses that may be associated with taking part. Please contact Opera North Education for more information and to find out if you are eligible, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
